    Honestly, my biggest problem with this is it doesn't look like it'll be comfy for when I'm singing loudly or shouting. It looks like it hugs a person's face to the point that moving your mouth a bunch would be very bothersome.

    • Stefan Rabenstein
      Stefan Rabenstein 4 months ago +64

      ​@Plebeian The question remains if it actually works for its intended purpose. Honestly, Charlie did not really make many interesting points this video. Anybody is able to see it looks ridiculous, and I can't imagine most people would use it outside of their own room. He has no idea if the sound quality is good or bad, and how much it does or does not dampen your voice. For anybody in a living situation where this would actually be useful to them, these are the important questions.

    • Universal
      Universal 4 months ago +22

      @Plebeian right, i will say the cost and the size of this thing is outrageous, but i could see someone using this with a VR headset, 100%. Living in an apartment too, some people just need these for the sake of every other tenant lol.

      The office I work in has a sound box that you can move to during a call or meeting to be loud in there without disturbing others, but we only have one and I’m sure this is way cheaper.

    I absolutely agree on a design flaw, and analogy with petri dish is a great analogy. Even the default mics on headsets need to be cleaned, no matter how loud or quietly you talk since it's a sponge that accumulates all the mucus etc on it. But the idea is really great. If it costs not so much, why spend more time and money on sound-proofing your room (if you even have one or live in a dorm), when this thing exists. I wish this product existed when I lived with my parents, I would've screamed and yelled every time we got a PHAT W instead of typing GG guys.

    • Billy Goatguy
      Billy Goatguy 4 months ago +6

      i think a better solution would be to not be in an abusive household, a parent that is that insistant on listening to you would probably be thinking that you are talking about THEM and dont want to be heard. Instantly discarded

      @Mad Dog I think youre missing my point. If you are in a household abusive enough to where you fear being heard by your family, the safest response is to reach out to either a teacher or a legal authority and get you literally anywhere else. I didnt say anything about this situation was simple or easy.

    My fiance streams on Twitch from time to time and we have desks right beside each other. Sometimes she will invite me to game with her for her stream, and while I always enjoy offering my presence and commentary, I always feel that me talking detracts from her stream in the long run because, while I do try to talk quietly, I am a very loud human being by nature so the things that I say are often broadcasted over my mic as well as hers. She is a casual v-streamer, so we don't quite have a budget put aside for an expensive mic to capture both of our voices in similar quality, but this idea (while its current design looks absolutely f***en stupid) might actually be an amazing way to allow friends or couples to stream and game in the same room together while not compromising audio quality for either! I hope this is an idea that continues to be expanded upon, improved, and tweaked to be comfortable and practical and to detract from the idiotic look that this device currently has.

    What it's aiming to do makes sense. A lot of us are most likely still living with our parents (because it's hard to afford a home right now unfortunately) who are trying to sleep at night, so for people who stay up late talking with online friends this kind of tech would definitely be handy.
    Except I'd rather soundproof my room and use a better microphone than to wear this muzzle from a dystopian future.

  • Original Character

    I am actually curious about one thing; would this be a decent solution to voice-acting when you don't have a booth to work with, or would the sound be all wrong?
    Some kind of sound-insulated muzzle which means your neighbours don't hear you shouting sounds like useful tool for something more specialised like that.

    I could definitely see how this is convenient for streamers/gamers in non soundproof walls who are playing stressful and super competitive games prone to outbursts.

      @Andrea That reminds me of the "Shut up gun" that was passed around years ago. The idea was it was a directional speaker that blasted things with an inaudible noise.

    The worst product I've ever seen legitimately advertised was when(I believe) Lysol sold an automatic hand sanitizer dispenser, which in of itself is not a bad idea if it were marketed towards people with certain disabilities or severe arthritis who might have trouble getting sanitizer out of a bottle, but they advertised it as a way to not get germs on your hands. You know, the same hands that are going to be sanitized after you rub sanitizer on them? Just a really weird marketing ploy and I've never seen them anywhere so I guess it didn't sell well.

    if the microphone is configured correctly speaking directly into it doesn't necessary make it sound bad. the opposite actually.

    I agree that the idea is good. It is something that could be useful on specific scenarios. However, that's not really how anyone should go about it.

Provided that this all isn't some highly elaborate, hugely dedicated meta-joke.

      to be any good it needs to cover the nose too at the bare minimum. Just like face masks the air and vibration from your voice goes out from your nose too. That's why you sound funny if you pinch close your nose while talking

  • Jackdaw

    This could be great for parents who don't want to wake up their kids, but still want to play competitive games. Or teenagers who would otherwise disturb their parents' peace during gaming. Or in any family where someone might work night shifts and really needs their sleep. I can see a lot of uses. Sure it looks stupid, but for some that might be a price they are willing to pay for some convenience.

  • Dominic Siañez

    AZREDFERN 4 months ago +2

    As creepy as it looks, I kind of see some merit to this. Not just for privacy, but environmental noise. Some crew chiefs already use a passive form of this around running aircraft (if the budget gods have blessed you). They don't have too much of an issue with the near field effect. I feel like using a bluetooth microphone is the biggest offense here. I still wouldn't want to use someone else's. If it's cheap enough, I'd try one in private, or in the 14 man tent on deployments.

  • mcgibs
    mcgibs 4 months ago

    The only real knocks against it are the looks and how difficult it may be to clean regularly. Also the fact it doesn't cover the nose. Speech would still be pretty audible through thin walls and such. Then again if it did cover the nose it would make it very difficult to breathe since if air can go through, so can sound.

  • Hypergram

    Another good idea for the sound dampening masks are for situations with lots of people talking on the phone for work, but constrained in a smaller area. Like a call center. Instead of many voices overlapping causing confusion, i guess i lot of muffled noise... Imagine a whole building full of people wearing these face suckers

    Ok so this could be actually useful for one use case.

It would make sense to use a plover keyboard for steno and this with a laptop instead of the old ass stenography machines in a court room.

    I think a use case for this is in multiplayer gaming when there is someone asleep within hearing distance of you. And even then, the design still looks ridiculous.

    It's a weird product since the living situations that can get the most use out of it (dorms and shared bedrooms) usually also means you don't have $200 just floating around to burn on something like this.
    I guess open office setups that don't want to provide enough conference space could use it, though hopefully they'd also provide a spray and/or UV light setup to keep it clean. People that do things like take conference calls in airports may legitimately use this if it filters outside noise since you can't readily find a conference room there and nobody cares about looking dumb in an airport. Half the people there are sleeping on the floor because they woke up at 5am that day while missing half their beauty products and most of them are complete strangers who'll be in a different country entirely in about 12 hours. Airports are already where dignity goes to die.
    Biggest problem I have with it is the form factor. The massive amount of headgear and elongated shape means it's likely pressing up on your lips in a really uncomfortable way the entire time you're wearing it and seems like it'd try to flop around whenever you move your head.

  • Crecross
    Crecross 4 months ago +4

    Some people actually can't talk when they play online because of their living situation. So this is actually pretty good no matter how dumb it looks. I know you have a whole as house with a whole ass room to record in. But not everyone has that charlie 💀 Maybe later they make a better design.

    I thought it was some kind of sound-cancelling mask that completely nullifies any sound you try to emit. For instance, if you wanted to scream as loud as you can out of frustration at work, here's the product for you!
    Might be a genuinely good idea, given the increase of stress-related situations on workplaces.

    if this had some kind of removable lining between your face hole and the mic to make cleaning easier, and maybe if it wasn't so chunky, I'd consider it for actual use paired with my quest 2. though I'd have to see some examples of the mic quality before anything else.

    Another huge negative of this is voice control, because if you're muting your own voice it's insanely hard to control how loud you are and you're also prone to making more mistakes or randomly getting mixed up in your speech.
